Debt Free?

A year and a half ago a friend of ours Skipper-sat while we went on a short jaunt as a family for a few days. As payment, I promised her a drawing. The first image she sent me had copyright issues...and then time flew by....getting ready for the solo exhibit, and all the art related business that comprised most of last year. It's been a very busy year of art stuff.

Even though a sketch is what I promised, I really don't like drawing that much---there's too much detail to bother me. Painting is preferable, which is technically sketching with paints and a paintbrush (isn't it?).

To make a long story short, I have finally gotten around to "drawing" the long promised sketch, though I did it with oil pastels. Oil pastels are like a chalky crayon...which was an unusual medium for me, considering this was my first time to use it. The problem was that since I chose to draw on a linen canvas, it was hard to fill in the bumps in the linen. So I put some oil on the end of a paintbrush and kinda sorta painted everything together.

Now the issue is will my friend like it and consider the debt cancelled?

Let's barter....Skipper doesn't appreciate anyone younger than 16, so we might need to think of something else...
